Light serves a profound function in our lives. Receive too much or too little of it and you’ll experience both physical and emotional effects. I remember visiting Alaska in the summer and reading a book by sunlight at two in the morning. This was a pretty cool experience but it made it quite difficult to sleep at my normal times. I also have many friends who live in Seattle and talk about the lack of sunlight they receive on a regular basis. It’s not uncommon for a person to choose where she lives based on the light available in that state. Light affects everything.

"My computer is so slow it no longer runs programs, it walks them.” Funny? Sure, but if your computer is slower than molasses, it can be incredibly frustrating trying to get anything done. Many people believe that after a certain number of years, the computer just slows down and there is nothing you can do but replace it. In some cases, replacing an old, out-of-date computer with a newer, more powerful model makes economic sense, but many computers can be cleaned and have their useful life extended for much less than a new computer costs.

"Green” interiors are not a new style, a preferred color choice or even a new trend. “Green” interiors means using energy-efficient, non- or low-polluting products, built with sustainable resources and can be maintained without the use of toxic cleaning products, to create interiors that are both for people and good for the environment. Why should it make a difference in our interiors and our lives? Because most people want their home to be a place where they feel comfortable, secure and at ease knowing they are living in a safe and healthy environment that is also beautiful.
On July 2, director Scott Derrickson adds “Deliver Us From Evil” to his cache of creepy horror films including “Sinister” and “The Exorcism of Emily Rose.” Based on the real-life experiences of former-NYPD-officer-now-demonologist Ralph Sarchie, the film stars, along with plenty of demonic possessions, a rich cast including Eric Bana as the pessimistic, skeptic cop Sarchie, Joel McHale as his joke-cracking partner and Edgar Ramirez as Mendoza, an undercover priest. GetOut had the chance to talk with Eric Bana and Joel McHale about the upcoming film.
In order to keep the ball on the “fairways” and not in the “rough,” here is my green light idea. In the purchase contract to Pulte, stipulate the following conditions: The proceeds from the sale of the Lakes Golf Course shall be allocated as follows: First, the original purchase price of the property (based on recorded data) goes to Mr. [Wilson] Gee. That step would keep him whole. Second, the balance after repayment of the original purchase price would be divided as follows: a portion of the balance based on the CPI change from when Gee purchased the property to current date is given to him (say 15 percent but based on hard data) and as bonus for “being easy to do business with,” an additional 5 percent.
